1. To my GP (Dutch + Eng)
2. The index of About ME/CFS
3. Seven links to crisis items I selected, without comments
4. Three fine items by George Carlin
This is a Nederlog of Friday, February 24, 2017. This is not
an ordinary crisis log but is the proper start of a series "About
ME/CFS". So this is the first item of that series (but I did include February 21 also). It is "About
ME/CFS - 0" which again is called "To my GP (Dutch + English)". I will also
delete today my complaints of the stunning lacks of service by both of my
providers for the present Nederlog, not because they suddenly started
to work well (they did not) but because the present item also will be
the first index file of the series "About ME/CFS".
Summary: This is the first file in the new series About ME/CFS. Item 1
is a reproduction of a mail (in Dutch) that I wrote to my GP on
February 19 and it comes with 34 English notes that I added today; item 2 is the beginning of the index "About ME/CFS"; item 3 are seven Crisis files, but without my comments; and item 4
consists of a repeat from yesterday, for I like George
Carlin very much because he was very witty and is one of the very few people I know who spoke the truth about politics, culture and civilization: Almost everybody else bullshitted.
1. To my GP (Dutch + Eng)
The first item is a reproduction of a Dutch mail I sent to my GP on February 19, 2017. This is mainly about my discovering some really big changes in the scienrtific status
of ME/CFS, that were mosty caused by biochemical and medical research
plus experiments by the Norwegian dr˙Oystein Fluge plus sixteen medical
and biochemical co-workers.
It also talks about 38 years of continuous discriminations by more than
90% of the medical doctors I have seen since January 1979 (when my ex
and I both got Epstein-Barr), and the continuous discriminations by all
the Dutch bureaucrats and all the Dutch politicians, and why this was
totally unjustified in our cases, for we were honest, scientific and
rational from the start, and also highly gifted - which you are not allowed to say in the Narko-nazistic Netherlands, for I have been kept 4
years out of sleep by illegal drugsdealers that were - and are -
protected by the Amsterdam mayors and since then - from 1991 onwards -
my health has been destroyed by the noise and the murderthreats of
illegal bastards who were dealing illegal drugs with all the protections of the
City of Amsterdam and the all the protections of the State of the
Netherlands, where each year at least 20 billion euros in illegal
drugs have been turned over.
I do not think all these protections - for what are now 29 years - can be considered rationally without asking the question: "What percentage of the turnover ended in the pockets of Dutch polliticians?"
So I ask it once again (for much more - if you read Dutch - see ME in
Amsterdam) also if it kills me, for it has nearly killed me, but no
Amsterdam mayor, no Amsterdam politician, no Amsterdam police man, no
Amsterdam bureaucrat ever did anything for me, while they did
everything - for 29 consecutive years - to protect the illegal dealers
of illegal drugs that are extremely profitable.
And there is also some talk about being highly gifted and having highly
gifted parents, for I am, my ex is, and I will not permit any
discriminations for my saying so.
Here is first the Dutch mail to my GP, in which there are 34
note numbers, that are given under the Dutch text, but in English and
from today (February 24). I think these English notes ought to be independently readable. Here is a link to the start:
Beste X ,
Dan wat M.E. betreft: Ik heb dat nu voor het 38ste -
volledige - jaar, en er is een nieuwe theorie over die ik erg
serieus neem. Ik zal dit kort houden, maar ik wil in ieder
gevak wèl dat je de eerste link leest, omdat dit hooguit een paar
Dit ontving ik eergisteren. Omdat ik
enkele zeer intelligente mensen ken, waarvan één een kind
heeft met nu 18 jaar M.E., kreeg ik gisteren een 19 paginaas
lang verhaal van 17 Noorse artsen en biochemici met de
volgende titel (het is in December 2016  gepubliceerd), maar je
hoeft het niet te lezen, want het is zwaar
biochemisch (al is de inleiding duidelijk en zeer de moeite
waard - en de link werkt voor mij):
Ik heb het ondertussen volledig gelezen,
maar met aanzienlijke moeite, veel nakijken in Wikipedia, en
zeker zonder volledig begrip, want ik weet eenvoudig niet
genoeg van biochemie. Hier is een - erg korte - samenvatting
van mij die ik eerder aan mijn broer zond (die één van de zeer
weinige mensen is van wie ik hulp kreeg, de afgelopen
38 jaar van ziekte, ellende en pijn):
Ik weet - natuurlijk - niet of de
nieuwe theorie over ME klopt, maar deze is zéér veel zinniger
dan het verhaal uit 2009, want (1) dit is echte biochemie, en
is gebaseerd op vergelijkend onderzoek van meer dan 100 paren
<ME-patient, gezond proefpersoon> dat zeer veel zeer
waarschijnlijke biochemische afwijkingen opgeleverd heeft +
(2) een langdurig experiment met een zeer duur
geheten, dat behoorlijk effectief bleek (maar als gezegd
bijzonder duur is, en behoorlijk risico-vol) en dat ook in
Noorwegen plaatsvond, eerder, en door dezelfde doktoren werd
gedaan als die het lange zwaar biochemische verhaal schreven
(althans: de leider is dezelfde, en het lange verhaal is van
17 doktoren) + (3) er wordt ook geen nieuw retrovirus
geintroduceerd (dat dus bleek eenvoudig niet te bestaan in
2011: het was contaminatie) maar gewoon alleen bekende
biochemie gebruikt (die natuurlijk weer onvolledig is,
maar dat is nu eenmaal altijd zo in de échte wetenschap) + (4)
dit zijn allemaal echte artsen of echte biochemici, en 't zijn
er 17, verbonden aan echte ziekenhuizen, wat ook zeer veel
beter is dan het verhaal uit 2009.
Kortom, dit is geen onzin, zelfs als het maar
gedeeltelijk waar is. 
Omdat dit e-mail programma waarin ik dit schrijf - Thunderbird
- erg slecht is dupliceer ik de link maar die in de geciteerde
Dit is een kankermedicijn (bijzonder duur en geheel niet vrij
van risico) dat experimenteel gegeven is aan Noorse
ME-patiënten, waarvan er 2 van de 3 genazen (van een aanzienlijk
grotere groep met ernstige M.E., die tot dan vnl. in bed
lagen), waarna dezelfde man die dat opzette, alweer in 2011, nu
de leider is van het tweede bovenstaande punt. "Chronic fatigue
syndrome" (M.E.) wordt ook in het Rituximab verhaaltje genoemd,
en terecht. 
Omdat ik vrijwel zeker alweer 38 jaar M.E. heb, net als mijn
ex , en omdat het bovenstaande onderzoek goed, zinnig, door 17
echte medici + biochemici is gedaan, en experimentele ook
gesteund wordt door de Rituximab gegevens, ga ik er van uit dat
dit ook (zelfs?) voor Nederlandse medici een sterke grond is om
toe te geven dat ik werkelijk ziek ben.  En ik geef je
onmiddellijk eerlijk toe dat mijn ex en ik zo'n 30 zogenaamde
medische specialisten hebben gezien tussen 1979 en 1983, waarvan
niemand iets kon vinden (dat geeft niets, want geldt voor
iedereen met ME) of iets wist (en dat geeft wel, ME - lang
achteraf gezien - is in 1965 zeer goed en zeer duidelijk omschreven is door doktor Alan Ramsay), en waarvan de
meeste zeiden dat het "dus psychosomatisch" is (wat voor mij nu
"maar 38 jaar" buitengewoon veel problemen gegeven
heeft, en dat ik een schunnig oordeel vond en vind, heb
ik een zéér gering geloof in Nederlandse artsen: 
Het spijt me maar ik heb veel teveel geldbegerige oplichters en
halve idioten aan moeten horen.  Ze wisten namelijk niet wat ze behoorden
te weten (mijn ex en ik, weer achteraf, hebben zeer
nauwkeurig omschreven wat ons klemde - geheel volgens de
"Canada Criterions", uit 2002/2003, en ook genoemd in het 2e
link-punt ("Metabolic" etc.)  en dat hadden ze behoren te
kunnen vinden, als medische specialisten, want dat stondreal biochemistry
ook in Ramsay, en dat was toen een jaar of 15 oud en tamelijk
bekend, wéér lang achteraf, en mijn ex en ik waren en zijn
geheel niet gek, al waren we wel allebei hoogbegaafd, dat ons
uiteindelijk ook allebei een uitstekend doctoraal
psychologie opleverde, zonder ooit enig college
te hebben kunnen volgen vanwege ziekte. (Mijn ex had een IQ van
142, het mijne was hoger , weliswaar allebei vóórdat we ziek
waren - en mijn ex was psychologisch assistente bij de
Jellinek-kliniek en testte voornamelijk IQs en wilde weten waar
dat op gebaseerd is, en is daarom psychologie gaan studeren,
want dat was haar nooit behoorlijk uitgelegd).
Aangezien ik óók drie werkelijk uitstekende Nederlandse
artsen heb gezien tussen 1979 en 1991 moet ik wel generaliseren
uit wat ik weet, en dat is dat 90 van de 100 Nederlandse
artsen in ingewikkelde gevallen niet weten wat ze wel
behoren te weten , en in plaats daarvan met grote en ons zéér
schadende onzin aankomen, want ze hadden geen enkele positieve
evidentie dat we gek waren, anders dan dat zij niets
konden vinden.  ("Blame the victim!", "Blame the victim!", "Blame
the victim!" - en zie hieronder voor wat dit betekende voor
slachtoffers als ik. En nee, ik heb nu een minimum-pensioen, dat
ook weer minder is dan het minimum, omdat ik bijna 3 jaar in
Noorwegen heb gewoond: Dat kost me zo'n 600 euro per jaar dat ik
minder krijg dan het minimum waar iedereen recht op heeft, die
50 volledige jaren in Nederland woonde. )
Ik schrijf dit uit omdat ik nu 38 jaar ziek ben, 28
jaar geleden medisch gediagnosticeerd ben als hebbende
M.E./F.M. (voor de eerste keer, en nog 2 keer daarna), geheel
niet geholpen ben , én veelvuldig voor gek verklaard ben
door medici met een wetenschap die nauwelijks 150 jaar oud
is (sinds Pasteur, zeg) , terwijl ik feitelijk al die
tijd ziek ben, zeer veel minder energie heb, en in pijn
ben. En ook omdat dit betekent dat ik werkelijk mijn geloof in
Nederlandse medici vrijwel volledig verloren heb, althans voor mijn
soort klachten. (De mazelen e.d. weten ze waarschijnlijk
allemaal redelijk te behandelen, geef ik ook direct toe.)
Daarbij, ik heb eenvoudig veel minder energie dan
gezonde mensen, dus het naar wéér een medicus "behoren" te gaan
vanwege een wat vage klacht die ik niet zelf via
Wikipedia kan herleiden, betekent dat ik een apriori verwachting
heb van zo'n maximaal 5% een werkelijk competent figuur te
treffen  - dat in de psychologie voldoende wordt geacht om te
zeggen dat ie er niet is, waarschijnlijk.
Trouwens, ik geloof zelf echter ook niet dat psychologie of
psychiatrie échte wetenschappen zijn - als natuurkunde of
scheikunde  - en wat dat betreft heb ik een uitstekende
verwijzing voor je van een - gepensionneerde - Nasa-medewerker,
Paul Lutus, die - net als ik - bijzonder veel van
wetenschapsfilosofie weet :
Dit toont aan wat ik me in 1980 realiseerde (na ruim 2
jaar studie psychologie): Het is geen echte wetenschap,
inderdaad met uitzondering van een paar delen, als statistiek,
methodologie, en wat toen psychofysiologie heette (waarin mijn
ex afgestudeerd is).  Ik kan het je van harte aanraden
(en wie dit verhaal niet begrijpt is eenvoudig wetenschappelijk
onbekwaam - en ik kende alle wiskundige
voorbeelden die hij aangeeft ook al in 1980). Er zitten
ook een paar kleine foutjes in (zijn argument over psychologie
is niet logisch geldig) maar het verhaal is in beginsel en
wetenschapfilosofisch gezien héél goed. 
Het spijt me dat dit enigszins lang is (ik kan het helaas niet
Twitteren, waar ik dan ook geheel niet aan doe) en het spijt me
dat het enigszins kritisch is - maar ja: ik ben "maar slechts" 38
jaar ziek vrijwel zonder enige hulp - nauwelijks medisch (niet,
afgezien van slaapmiddelen), en geheel niet sociaal of
bureaucratisch, "want ik ben gek volgens de medici" zeggen de
bureaucraten. (Want dat is wat "psychosomatisch" in
de alledaagse praktijk betekent, voor bureaucraten en
politici: Je hebt recht op helemaal niets meer, en je
wordt van alles waar zieke mensen recht op
hebben vanzelfsprekend uitgesloten, zoals ik nooit zélfs
maar in de ziektewet zat, wat bijzonder grote problemen
met de bijstand opleverde, vele jaren lang.  O, en er wordt ook niet
meer naar je geluisterd, "want"  je bent lid van een groep
psychosomatiseerders, en wat voor de groep geldt geldt
automatisch voor jou, al ben je briljant afgestudeerd in
de psychologie, en al ben je ziek geworden, net als je eveneens
al weer 38 jaar zieke ex, in het eerste jaar van de
Met vriendelijke groeten,
(M.A. psychologie (eind-gemiddelde: 9,3), B.A. filosofie
(eind-gemiddelde: 8+), omdat ik ook van het doen van een M.A. in
de filosofie vlák voor mijn doctoraal uitgesloten
werd, ook door het CvB van de UvA  , omdat ik geen Marxist
was, en kritiek geformuleerd had, en een studentenpartij
opgericht had die het niet eens was met de communisten
van de Asva noch met de "sociaal-democraten" die het CvB
vormden, die samen de absolute macht hadden in de UvA tussen
1971 en 1995). 
P.S. Zoals je je wellicht herinnert heb ik bijna 3 jaar in
Noorwegen gewoond, en is de grootste fout uit mijn leven
geweest dat ik naar Nederland terug ben gegaan  (om te studeren,
wat feitelijk - ondanks de diplomaas - op een totale
deceptie uitdraaide, met extreem veel
moeilijkheden en discriminatie omdat ik de studenten-politiek in
ging en tegenstander was van de Asva ). Wel... ik weet zelfs
niet of er wel 17 Nederlandse artsen zouden zijn die geloven dat
M.E. iets anders is dan "psychosomatose".  (Er is er een
Nederlandse medische dokter Mark Vink die zware M.E.
heeft, en nauwelijks 5 stappen heen en terug naar de W.C. kan
lopen, maar ik neem aan dat ook hij voor gestoord doorgaat, want
zo gáát dat - en ik las een stuk van hem, over M.E., waaraan ik
dit ontleen.) Niemand van die artsen weet zélfs maar - duidelijk
en rationeel en medisch verantwoord - te zeggen wat "de psyche"
zou zijn. (Ik ook niet. En zie Lutus, in de laatste link.) 
P.P.S. Ik vervolg deze mail ook later, en zet hem op mijn sites
(zonder jouw naam of enige identificatie), omdat ik erop
terug wil komen, mede ook i.v.m. met 4 jaar drugsterreur
en een feitelijke vergassing door illegale
drugshandelaars (in marijuana en hashish) die Van Thijn -
persoonlijk, met zijn handtekening , in een brief die de illegale
drugshandelaars mij in 1988 toonden: "Het mocht van de
burgemeester: zie hier zijn handtekening met zijn "persoonlijke
toestemming"" (citaat, en op gemeentelijk papier) om
gelijkvloers in mijn huis in marijuana en hashish te
handelen, ik weet niet voor welke financiële vergoeding voor hem
(van de ca. 20 miljard euroos in illegale drugs die
vanuit Nederland jaarlijks omgezet mogen worden, sinds
ca. 1988, volgens het parlementaire Van Traa-rapport
(!!) , allemaal met zegen van talloos vele Nederlandse
burgemeesters, wethouders, rechters en aanklagers), en vanwege 10
jaar voor "fascist" uitgemaakt zijn aan de UvA omdat ik
Marxist was én kritiek had op het - schandalig slechte en
armoedige - "onderwijs" dat ik kreeg.  Dit staat allemaal
beschreven in ME
in Amsterdam, maar daar is maar door héél weinig
Nederlanders op gereageerd, naar ik aanneem omdat er minstens
750.000 nabestaanden van NSB'ers waren en hoogstens enkele
tienduizenden in het verzet zaten in de de 2e WO, waaronder
allebei mijn ouders en mijn grootvader. (Mijn vader en zijn
vader zijn gearresteerd en als "politieke terroristen"
veroordeeld door Nederlandse collaborerende rechters (nooit
bestraft) tot concentratiekamp straffen in de zomer van 1941,
dat mijn vader overleefd heeft maar mijn grootvader niet). 
gemiddelde IQ aan de UvA in 1984, volgens de UvA, was ... 115.
(Wat het e.e.a. behoort te verklaren over de hoge cijfers die
mijn ex en ik haalden, want 1/3e tot de 1/2 daarvan haalde
uiteindelijk óók een doctoraal of kandidaats diploma, in de 80er
jaren. Ach ja. )
Notes of February 24, 2017
 As I said, I deleted everything that may make it easier to identify my GP. Also I am the only person who is responsible for my own opinions, and some
of my opinions - about Amsterdam, about illegal drugsdealing, about the
Netherlands, and about the University of Amsterdam and general
education, for example - go far beyond ordinary medicine.
Also, ordinary medicine in Holland is in fact a mess: Much
higher and legally forced insurance premiums for very much less medical
help, that is given by so-called "medical doctors" who got to be
doctors in half of the years it took for a hundred years, but
who may even try to pretend to be even higher semi-divinities than the
semi-divinities my ex and I saw between 1979 anf 1984. (Ah well...)
No, that's a small mistake: Fluge et al. was published on January 3,
2017. Also, for those who do not read Dutch this is about the
following, of which the first is a brief and generally understandable
article in the New Scientist:
and the second a long report on a very fine investigation of the reasons why 2 out of 3 people (out of 18 in total) with ME/CFS who got Rituximab were cured or got a lot better:
The second is "the real thing", but it will be very
hard or impossible to understand for most without medical and
biochemical knowledge. The first is a popular summary and can be
understood by everyone.
 In fact, the four facts I mention - (i) it's real biochemistry that established many
differences between people with ME/CFS and people without; (ii) that
was undertaken to try to explain why 12 out of 18 people with serious
ME?CFS who were given Rituximab got cured or got a lot better; (iii)
they only use known biochemistry (and introduce no new virus);
and (iv) these are all real medical doctors and real biochemists who
work in real hospitals and real universities - is VERY much better than anything the - totally collapsed - earlier "XMRV-virus" of 2009 (that turned out to be contamination in 2011) ever could produce.
 This is about the (English) Wikipedia lemma Rituximab that does mention "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome". This is correct, though it is true that the name "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" is an intentionally misleading propaganda term that was taught up by the pseudoscientific psychiatrists, in part to make their claim that medical research into M.E. is not necessary ('for we are all fatigued'). I reject the name (and was diagnosed as having M.E./F.M. ("F.M." is Fibromyalgia) first in 1989
(and two later times, always by real medical persons) before that
sickening name was introduced. I keep it in my references "ME/CFS"
because this seems to be the most acceptable search-term (and indeed
just "ME" also is quite confusing if only because everyone is a me (as
 My ex and I got both ill with Epstein-Barr (<-Wikipedia) in January of 1979, and indeed my ex was told in April 1979 by the same GP who had diagnosed Epstein-Barr that she was "a psychosomatiser" (without
him knowing anything about her, and in fact also without him knowing
much about Epstein-Barr). We kept together until the beginning of 1984,
but by then our health was much worse because of forced lack of sleep,
and we separated. We both are still ill.
 My GP agreed I am really ill, as indeed I think anybody qualified to read the second link above about the impaired pyruvate dehydrogenase
function and who knows some of my history of 38 ill years should do.
 Indeed I do have very much less faith in Dutch medical doctors than I have ever had. And I have very much less faith in the competence, the rationality, the decency, the gifts, and the medical knowledge of anyone who is a medical doctor in Holland and whom I do not
know, for the simple reason that I have been misdiagnosed as "a
psychosomatiser" by at least 20 medical frauds, who then proceeded to
make me the victim for their failing to know anything
about ME/CFS (which they could have and should have: it was all known,
it was all well-described, but no "medical specialist" my ex and I met
knew anything about this) by insisting that I must be psychosomatising, which entailed virtually endless problems for me by bureaucrats and politicians (viz. from 1980 till 2015).
Besides, the new medical doctors that have been educated since the 1980ies have had at most half
the time to finish their studies from what was required in the previous
100 years, and they certainly are on average less intelligent. So no, I
will probably never trust any Dutch medical person before having seen
him or her, and talked well, during which it is possible to establish
for me what he or she does and does not know.
For what I have found is simply this: If you have a rare disease about which little is known at present, then BEWARE DUTCH MEDICS FOR THEY WILL MAKE YOU THE VICTIM FOR THEIR COMBINATION OF MEDICAL IGNORANCE AND LACK OF MORAL NORMS. All Dutch medical people work for money first and not for their patients, in at least 90 out of a 100 cases (experimentally!).
Especially the late prof.dr. Koster, prof.dr. Grijm (probably also
dead), and the former medical doctor (he was thrown out of being a
medical doctor) Ruud Vermeulen: All medical frauds.
 This mentions "the Canada Criterions" (which are also mentioned in the the impaired pyruvate dehydrogenase
and rightly so) is the best definition of the symptoms of M.E. There
are in fact three versions of it: One of 2001, one of 2009 and one of
2011, I think. They are all three mostly similar but have been updated.
Of the three versions I like the second the best, and the main reason
for that is that it (like the one before) spoke about "Post Extertional
Malaise", which I think is a quite correct name for something I have run into extremely
many times in the 38 years of my disease, but they substituted another
term for this (which was considerably less well chosen, I think) in
their last version.
But in any case: This was the best definition of ME for a long time, and they did excellent work. Here is a link to
The above is a good link. I think the above link is from 2005.
 I am very sorry but these are simple facts, just as it is a simple fact that I do not believe IQs are a good measure of real intelligence. But whatever definition is used, my ex and I are in the class of "the highly gifted" and I am not sorry we are.
Also, since we are, I will use it: I am not going to discuss with
anybody about ME/CFS until I know they are very intelligent, of which
the best proof is that you made an excellent M.A. degree (as my ex and
I both did) while you were ill with M.E. all the time.
And I am sorry if your IQ is under 130, but that simply means that it is probable that you are not highly gifted, which again means that you probably will not - properly - understand many of the things I wrote on my site. It can't be helped, I am afraid.
O, and see the last note -  - for a brief explanation why having a high IQ was very probably necessary to enable my ex and myself to make the excellent M.A.s we did get (without ever attending any lectures, because we were ill).
 This is a wholly correct generalization from the facts I learned when my ex and/or I visited about 30 "medical specialists" between 1979 and 1984: 27 simply did not know anything about ME, whereas they could and should have known, because the disease was known since 1955 and it was well described by dr. Alan Ramsay in 1965. None of the 30 knew anything about this, while they all should have known if they had been competent.
And I did not know all were incompetent until well after 2000,
and indeed mostly after 2009, when I got fast internet. I do know now,
and I insist on it, for it is an important fact about the competence of
Dutch doctors: Most pretend do be vastly more competent than they really are.
This is additional reason for me to distrust most Dutch medical people:
Not only did they not know what they should have known, they also falsely accused us of being insane ("psychosomatisers"), but that is the real meaning: "I think you are a nut, and therefore I will not do anything for you, but if I diagnose you I will make clear to the bureaucrats that I think you are a nut."
Well, I think that medical people who said so are incompetent nuts, indeed also because they refused to listen to us, refused to help us, but did very much harm by their non-medical pseudoscientific utter bullshit.
This probably means that I am the poorest Dutchman there was, the last
50 years, for I also started working 50 years ago. And I absolutely never
earned as much as is the legal minimum every Dutchman is entitled to.
It also is true I was able to minimally survive on it, but this is so
because I don't drink and have no expensive other sins. And indeed at
present - with a pension that is some 50 euros less than a minimum
pension ("because you lived more than two years in Norway") I am in
fact better of than I was ever before, also because I do not anymore depend on the City of Amsterdam's narkonazis.
Again, this is the sickening fact about the - fascist, terrorist [*] -
diagnosis that my ex and I are insane ("psychosomatisers"): You are
systematically and intentionally denied all help by anyone, because you
are - falsely, it turns out, after "a mere 38 years" - accused of being
[*] I have been called a "fascist", a "dirty fascist" and a
"terrorist" in the University of Amsterdam many tens and possibly
several hundreds of times in the University of Amsterdam, while in fact
I am an anti-fascist from an anti-fascist family with a father who was knighted for being an anti-fascist, so yes: I am going to use this term of abuse that has been falsely stuck on me for "a mere 12 years", that also caused that I was illegally denied the right to do my - excellent - M.A. in philosophy in the University of Amsterdam because I was not a Stalinist, like most of the fascist terrorists I met there, who were (in secret) members of the Dutch communist party.
The main reason I will use the terms of abuse I was falsely abused with for more than ten years is that I think that Holland is a Narkonazi state where the politicians protect the drugsdealers for a share in the money, and where I have seen far too many degenerate utter incompetents in positions of great power.
 I think medicine started to be a real science mostly by the time of Pasteur (<-Wikipedia). If I date this as around 1875, medicine is a real science for no longer than 142 years. Even so, the Dutch medics who called me insane ("psychosomatiser") must have made an assumption to the effect that anything not known by their science (of 105 years, in 1980) must be making it up himself, in fact reasoned: What is not known by our science does not exist. This is not science: it is prejudice, and it is a prejudice that harmed my ex and myself, and everyone with ME/CFS, a very great lot.
 I am scientifically competent and this is
the expectation I have about my chances of meeting a competent Dutch
medic I do not know and am assigned to out of the big pool by some GP:
The chance that he or she will be competent is reckoned by me - after many extremely disappointing experiences, of startlingly unscientific prejudices - as being at most 5%.
 I believe both are pseudosciences, and indeed believe psychology is a pseudoscience (<-Wikipedia) since 1980,
indeed because I had been reading philosophy of science for more than
ten years then. And indeed physics and chemistry are good examples of real sciences (of which physics goes back 400 years now, to Galileo Galilei (<-Wikipedia)).
Incidentally, the fact that a science is - in real fact - mostly a pseudoscience does not
mean it is totally worthless, nor that you are incapable of helping
people, nor that you do not know anything. But it is not a real science
like physics or (bio)chemistry are.
 Yes indeed: Paul Lutus, who wrote The Scientific Paradigm, does know a lot of philosophy of science, and he also published a rather similar story as this before, as "Is Psychology A Science?"
 My ex does have an M.A. with psychophysiology (<-Wikipedia) as her field of expertise - as it was then called. I do not know what it is now called, but probably neuroscience (<-Wikipedia). This is
a valid field, but it is recent, and I do not think it is quite
well-established as yet, although there are meanwhile quite a few
people who graduated in it. According to Wikipedia, it is a subscience
of biology, which seems correct to me.
 Yes, indeed: I knew all the mathematical
examples Lutus gives by 1980, indeed mostly from philosophy of science
and mathematics, and I do think that if you do not understand The Scientific Paradigm you cannot
be scientifically competent. (His argument about psychology is
incorrect because he uses the premiss that "people lie all the time,
about everything", which is too vague and not quite correct: Most people lie a lot, but this does not mean that all data are invalid. But otherwise the essay is quite good and quite sensible.)
 This says I had many years great problems with the Amsterdam dole: Indeed I did, and they are in part explained in ME in Amsterdam (that I recommend to all who read Dutch), but only up till 2007. There were considerable
further problems, but I did - in the end of 2011 - speak to someone who
wanted to listen and who could make decisions (and who claimed to be
Moroccan but was probably alderman Andrée van Es, although I do not know that), for from the end of 2011 till the end of the dole in August of 2015 I was not bothered anymore (which was a great relief).
This must have come "from high up", given the great amounts of sadists and terrorists I had met as "bureaucrats of the Amsterdam dole" (who were described as "concentration camp guards" in 2015, not by me, which was more or less allowed by the then alderman), which is why I made my - possibly false - identification.
 This "because" is justified by identity politics: You are not an individual anymore: you coincide with the group to whom you have been assigned, and you are without
any individual distinction. Since my ex and I were students of
psychology, and later M.A.s of psychology, and fell both ill in the
first year of our university studies, I think identity politics abused us by denying our individual stories with the help of a sick and neofascistic prejudice.
 I was illegally denied the right to take the M.A. examination in philosophy by a collaboration of six persons,
three from the faculty of philosophy, namely drs. Theodoor Bolten,
prof.dr. Frans Jacobs, and prof.dr. Cornelis Verhoeven, and by three
persons from the Board of Directors of the University of Amsterdam drs
Jan-Karel Gevers, drs R.H.T. Bleijerveld and drs. Roel Poppe.
I will later return to their personal characteristics. What they did to me was completely illegal, but they did it, and very much on purpose and in collaboration and as "fascist terrorists" (which is what they said or implied I was, for I was thus scolded after my speech (<-English link) that started my illegal removal from the right of taking the M.A. in philosophy).
I do insist on one thing here and now: Apart from professor Jon Dorling I have met NO competent philosopher who taught at the University of Amsterdam since 1977. And Jon Dorling also was dismissed as philosopher of science in 1992, I suppose because he clearly was competent.
 This is about the University of Amsterdam whence I was removed for not being a Marxist and criticizing the Board of Directors. I have tried to explain quite a few times already in which ways the Dutch universities between 1971 and 1995 were completely unique in the whole world, because they had been handed over to the students
by an act of the Dutch parliament in 1971 ("Wet Veringa" = "the law of
minister Veringa"), which was finally withdrawn by another act of
parliament in 1995, but I now refer you to the notes at the end of this Nederlog (of three days ago).
 This explains the biggest mistake in my life:
I lived in Norway (with a Norwegian woman) and could have studied
there, but if I would have, probably would have done in Oslo, which is
a city neither my Norwegian ex nor myself liked, and therefore I
decided to return to Amsterdam without having made adequate investigations of the University of Amsterdam. (I had asked drs. Theodoor Bolten, but as usual he only told lies, and indeed also prevented I could study there from the year 1976 onwards. And no, I did not know he had lied to me until much later: He was a plausible liar.)
If I would have remained in Norway I would have received a much better education, and very possibly also would not have fallen ill with Epstein-Barr, and my life would have been completely different from what it turned out to be....
 And this sketches the biggest mistake in my life but one:
That I was convinced to help create a student-party to confront the
ruling student-party the ASVA. I was already ill when this happened,
and I was already very angry for the truly awful "education" handed out
by philosophy, and I also had decided that psychology (that was
considerably better organized than philosophy, is true) was not a real
science, so I did have some good reasons to be convinced, while I also
knew I was a very good speaker and writer, with a lot of political knowledge.
But I should not have done this, simply because my ex and I also
were both ill, and should have concentrated on finishing my study as
soon as I could. Then again, I did not expect to be
discriminated as much and as I was, as "a dirty fascist" and "a
terrorist, a terrorist, a terrorist" by the Stalino-fascistic communist
students who "studied" philosophy, for I did not expect extreme stupidities and totalitarianism of that extremely low level.
Yet that was "politics in the UvA", which was in fact all about money and status.
 I really do not know whether there are
17 Dutch doctors who presently believe that ME/CFS is other than "a
psychosomatic disorder" (and chose the number because there are at
least as many Norwegian doctors who do believe so).
I fear not, for Dutch doctors tend to be very slow (in real science)
and normally are not bright at all, in my extensive experience with
This is about "the psyche", which is part of "psychosomatic", which is
a word which consists of a mental half (say), viz. the disordered
psyche, and a somatic half (say), which is the body which is disordered
by "the psyche".
In fact, "the psyche" (<-Wikipedia) means "the soul", and "the soul" has no existence in real
somatic medicine. But most medics I have met insist it does, even
though they can never rationally explain what they mean, indeed because
they did not learn anything scientifically real about it, because it is
NOT a part of real medicine.
 I was four years terrorized by the illlegal drugsdealing fascist terrorists who must have been friends of Mayor Van Thijn of Amsterdam, for he did
give them his "personal permission" in writing, above his signature, on
offical paper of the City of Amsterdam, in 1988, for I was shown that letter by the illegal drugsdealers, who also had it in the beginning behind the window of their shop.
Mayor Van Thijn received several long letters by me, which were handed by me to his personal doorman against receipts, but he never answered me in any way, and also never even affirmed he had received my letters. Unfortunately, he is still alive, so I cannot write the truth about him.
 This is a reference to the Parliamentary Van Traa Report, that is on my site (in part, namely about Amsterdam), in which it was explained, in 1996, that in Holland indeed (in 1995 and before) around 20 billion florins were turned over merely in soft drugs (this makes about 10 billion
euros) each year, and a "much higher amount" if the sales in cocaine, heroine,
amphetamine, ecstasy and other illegal drugs are counted in as well,
which makes it in my estimate 20 to 25 billions of euros that are turned over in Holland, all quite illegally, all with "personal permission" by some mayor or some alderman each year, for this trade was extended all over Holland within a few years from 1988.
If you read Dutch, here is a relevant footnote I wrote to the Parliamentary Van Traa Report (and there are 200 more notes by me, in Dutch, from 2002). If the mayors and aldermen who gave their "personal permission" to deal in illegal drugs got as little as 1% of the yearly turnover (which is easily paid by the clients of the drugssellers) it means they got 200 million to 250 million euros each year.
Unfortunately, Van Traa was (very probably) killed in 1997, and since then all Heroic, Courageous (and possibly very rich) Dutch politicians refused to say almost anything about drugs, sales of drugs, quality of drugs etc. etc.
Incidentally, Van Thijn also made it impossible, already in 1988, that the police would find out how much a dealer sells, or what is the quality of the marijuana and hashish he sells, for his decisions kept the illegal profits a shop makes completely unknown.
So he did everything to sell as much illegal drugs as possible,
with as high a profit as possible, while no one knew anything about the
And Van Thijn also knew that my father had survived more than 3 years and 9 months as a "political terrorist" in German concentration camps; that my grandfather had been murdered for precisely the same reason; and that my father was knighted in 1980 (in Amsterdam's Town Hall) for designining and making a National Exhibition About Fascism And The Resistance.
As I said, Van Thijn never reacted to me in any way. Is
the reason perhaps that I am not a Jew? (Actually, I do not even know
whether I am not in Goebbel's and Himmler's "racial" sense, but indeed
I am not in my own view because I am an atheist and always was one.)
 This again refers to being called "a dirty fascist" and "a terrorist" "for a mere 12 years" in the University of Amsterdam though not every year because I was too ill to study much from 1984 till 1988. In 1988 and 1989 it again was very frequent, though it stopped in 1989 after I had started writing columns for "Spiegeloog". They have been translated to English as well: See the last link.
In fact, I think that much of what the Dutchmen think they know about
WW II probably consists of lies and certainly is propaganda. Three elementary numerical facts that are never mentioned where I could read them are these:
 This refers to the average IQ of the students in the University of Amsterdam in 1984, which was 115
(<-English link) and it says that about 1/3rd to 1/2 of these also
got a B.A. or an M.A. By now it is very probably lower, all in accordance with Tony Blair's sick and degenerate ideal that everybody with an IQ of 100 should be abled to make a university degree.
- In Holland over 1% of the total population was murdered in WW II,
for over 100,000 Jews were rounded up (with much help of David Cohen
and Abraham Asscher) and subsequently murdered (on a population of less
than 10 millions);
- in Holland there were over 750,000 persons who were members of the NSB or otherwise supporters of Hitler, but
- no more than a 100,000 persons who did something in the Resistance (and the real resistance consisted mostly ofwithout communists - of whom 2000 were murdered - or of radical Christians).

The fourth and last item today consists of (a repeat of) three very fine segments from
shows by George Carlin in the 1990ies, and I especially recommend the
first bit, although all are very good:

George Carlin tried to convey simply were facts and they are still
facts. But these facts are not conveyed by the mainstream media. And
they are not, because they counter the propaganda the mainstream media
seek to instill.
